    Claiming after a car crash in Northumberland

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Northumberland

    The advisers at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to tell you whether you can start claiming after a car crash in Northumberland, or an accident at work in Yorkshire.  In fact it doesn’t matter where you have been injured – we can help you find out if you have a case to bring against the person that is liable.

    Finding out if you can make a claim

    It can be hard for people who have no experience of making a claim to determine whether or not they have the right to seek compensation.  This is mainly because many people are not aware of what the actual qualifying criteria are for making a claim. Generally speaking there are three things that you need to be able to prove in order to proceed with a claim.

    The first thing is that the accident in question left you with an injury that actually justifies the seeking (and ultimately the granting) of compensation.  This is important because the injury you have suffered needs to have been serious enough that it has some form of impact on your life. This does not mean that you have had to have a limb amputated, or that you will suffer effects for the rest of your life, just that the injury did make a difference.

    For many people it could be as simple as having to take some time off from work.  This time off might not have been paid and therefore the injury had an impact on your income – which in turn can have many other effects if the incident goes on for a long time.

    Secondly we need to be able to show that the accident was someone else’s fault.  You may not be aware of the legalities as to why they are to blame, or maybe even who the liable party is – but if you know that the accident was not your fault we can work out the rest. We will look at the situation, the law surrounding it and then make a claim against the relevant person.

    Finally, when your accident occurred is important. Most claims must be started within three years so it is important that you do not leave it too long before getting in touch.
